It’s the middle of the night in the dead of winter, and you are flippin’ freezing. Trudging through the dark, you find the thermostat and crank that baby up to 81 degrees. After a few moments, it is toasty, warm, and comfortable. You do this every night for the next month. At the end of month, you get a bill in the mail. The amount due no longer makes you feel warm and fuzzy. You start questioning your life decisions, sanity, what you ate for dinner, and HOW THE HELL CAN THEY CHARGE
I live in Los Angeles where it’s 72 and sunny almost every day, and all I have to put up with in return is traffic, the constant fear of earthquakes, and the even more constant fear of being invited to an improv show. But for the rest of you poor souls who have to actually live through a paralyzing onslaught of icy death, here are some unusual ways to keep warm:The World’s Best Travel MugKeep yourself warm with a perpetually hot cup of coffee!

When I was twelve years old, I was often left home alone in a house in the middle of the mid-western countryside. You know, all M. Night Shyamalan “Signs” style with creaky screen doors and Mel Gibson wandering around chasing aliens on the roof. Okay, maybe not that last part–but still, in the dark of night in a house about twenty yards from a lone street that winds up to a low-traveled two-lane highway, things can get pretty scary at ten at night when you’re a kid.I devised
I haven’t bought a chemical cleaning product in about six years, with the exception of dishwasher detergent. (I spent about a year testing out every non-toxic dishwasher detergent and alternative that exists, and it was only when I went back to Cascade that my dishes started getting clean again.) I buy gentle dish soap, biodegradable sponges, and clean almost everything else with items I have on hand anyway. “Upcycle” old dishtowels and cloth diapers as rags. I have almost completely
